[idea] Integrated a/v transcoding tool

Post by forart » Sun May 23, 2010 11:34 am

I know that's not a priority but, in today *Tube days, it would be great to have an integrated easy tool to manage a/v file transcodings.

Something simple (and functional), non-invasive tool like this (a GPL FFMpeg/Mencoder GUI) would be great IMHO:

SGI's Video Converter GUI

Hope that inspires.

This is something most users don't use, can't agree on which one is best to use and can easily be downloaded and installed by the user. I don't see any reason it should be a core part of the system. No other programs rely on it or it's features.

it wont be added as core app for sure, because windows does not have such a app by default too. but feel free to suggest me such a app which i can add to our rapps tool.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Not any more it doesn't; Movie Maker is now part of the Microsoft Live Essentials package and not shipped with Windows. Forget how it was with XP. ReactOS is not XP.

I agree with Phalanx and EmuandCo that this sort of application should not be part of a ReactOS install.

But Windows *has* WMP too (which is able to convert to WMA, etc. too)...

I mean that an easy tool that manages media files convertions would be really useful to any standard user, IMHO.

but if I don't fail got MS judged not include the WMP to windows as core part in some countries, so you see that wmp does not belong to windows itself

We hardly have working audio cards and you want a Media Converter... as you wish, find one which can be built with RosBE and I will ask the others.

First we need to be able to copy a whole CD to HDD without crashing... or run a single app several number of times.

And Linux has mplayer :roll:

I don't understand why would we care about what Haiku does or does not.

Linux itself doesn't have mplayer; some Linux distro's have mplayer.

Indeed, what I mean is: Haiku is not NT clone, is BeOS clone, BeOS was thought for multimedia, BeOS clones are supossed to have an a/v transcoding tool by default, NT hasn't, I don't see why would it be one in ReactOS if you can easily download and install it (in a finished version, of course).

Then you wanna a Movie Maker clone ?
Sorry, i don't agree: i would prefer to have a *useful* tool to manage media transcodings.

BTW just an idea, don't worry.
